Green Lantern v2 #88 - Neal Adams art & cover

Green Lantern Green Arrow #88 dc comic book cover art by Neal AdamsGreen Lantern v2 #88, 1972 - Like many of DC's 52-page bronze age comics, this issue is comprised mostly of reprints. Neal Adams supplies the montage-like cover (except for the bottom panel), showcasing the two original Green Lanterns. Not among his best efforts, details fall short on the small illustrations. Compensating for this is Adams' exquisite pencil sketch for Green Lantern #89. This rough cover increases anticipation for the next issue. An unpublished golden age tale by Carmine Infantino accompanies the silver age reprints. This is number 14 of 15 Green Lantern issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or Green Lantern issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.

I collected a few of the GL/GA issues for the lusious Adams covers. I'm not all interested in reading these reprints, but TOTALLY IN LOVE this cover.

Just love the overall richness. Wish the middle reprint highlight drawing were done better, but just a treat seeing the two GL's bracket the cover.

I assume it's Adams' only depiction of Golden Age GL.

Not many come to mind. Only other example that comes to mind is the cover for DC Special #29 (Justice Society issue).
